Creative Vision Photographics
Smoky Hill Library
Artist's Statement: Throughout my life I have enjoyed the beauty of nature. There is something about the mixture of simplicity and complexity that draws me. When I create a photograph my goal is to capture a moment in time that is special to me so that I can share it with others.
But at the same time I am compelled by something even greater. I hope to draw people to (taking a line from the Wizard of Oz), “that man behind the curtain”, that is, the God behind the veil of creation. A Bible verse from Colossians 1:16 reads, “For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things were created through him and for him.” My photography is really much more about God’s greatness and glory than it is about me.

Teen Latino Art Contest
To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month September 15-October 15 the Information and Intercultural Librarians of Arapahoe Library District organized a Latino Art Contest for Teens during the month of September. The contest was open to all Colorado resident teens 11-18 years of age. The theme was What Hispanic Heritage and Culture Means to Me. The goal of the contest was to empower youth to express the richness of Hispanic culture and history through art. The contest illustrates the creativity teens possess and what stands out most to them about Hispanic heritage and culture. Arapahoe Library District received 76 art submissions and we will be showcasing the submissions on the Eloise May gallery walls from November 1-15, 2014.
